Regular soda will no longer be sold at schools.
In an agreement, announced Wednesday, soda makers and anti-obesity groups are teaming-up to pull regular soda from schools.
In addition, only low-fat milk, juice, and water will be available at elementary and middle schools.
Officials say diet sodas and sports drinks will be offered to high school students.
Regular sodas should be pulled from your child's school by 2010.
The deal is in cooperation between major beverage makers and the William J. Clinton Foundation along with the American Heart Association.
